He kept busy during lockdown as he continued to host his daily breakfast show on Radio X.
Yet Chris Moyles, took full advantage of the eased Covid-19 restrictions on Monday as he hosted the programme from a pub beer garden, despite it snowing just hours earlier.
The presenter, 47, was determined not to let the snow phase him as he broadcast in the freezing conditions live from The Charlotte in Southwark, London.
Cheers! Chris Moyles, took full advantage of the easing Covid-19 restrictions on Monday as he hosted his Radio X breakfast show from a pub beer garden in the snow
Chris told his listeners: ‘It’s not big and it’s not clever and it’ll be freezing, but I’m doing this for Britain.’
‘It’s started to sleet, which is brilliant. It’s really cold and anybody who has booked into a beer garden in England today, Dominic and I are basically testing this for you.
‘I’ll tell you now, it’s cold and it’s wet but let’s be honest, if you’re going to go to a beer garden, it ain’t gonna stop you, is it?’
‘We’re just doing this as a) a bit of a joke and b) as a bit of support for the industries of Britain that serve customers.’

The team were wrapped up warm in winter coats as they braved the freezing temperatures.
The caption read: ‘It’s been a long few months for everyone. Thanks to @TheCharlotteSE1 for having us. Stick to the rules, support local, and let’s get back to some normality. Cheers!’
In a video posted on Twitter the bartender delivered a Guinness and a Kiwi and Lime cider to the show hosts, to which Chris quipped: ‘Just put that on Matt Deverson’s tab’ who is Radio X’s managing editor.
Chris and his team were among a gang of lockdown-weary Britons who rushed back to the pub for a well-earned drink on Monday as England took another step forward on the roadmap out of lockdown.
For the first time in four months, non-essential shops, gyms and salons were allowed to throw open their doors – much to the delight of the millions of Britons.
Drinkers were also seen enjoying pints in outdoor areas across London, Manchester and other major cities.
